I attended the
field hearing for IPL's
Harding upgrade plan

the proposal: to
improve pollution controls,
reduce mercury

plan will cost hundreds
of millions of dollars passed
onto ratepayers

those in attendance
didn't think that was fair, nor
do they support coal

coal, while a cheap source
of energy, is a source
of greenhouse gases

greenhouse gases are
warming the earth, making the
weather chaotic ...

acidifying
oceans, intensifying
invasive species...

causing deeper droughts,
more raucous rainstorms, and a
melting Arctic Sea

why can't we progress
into the future instead
of mulling the past?

this is our moment
our time to tell kids we changed
things for the better
